Clinic of the Clinamen: The Materiality of the Symptom

  • Patricia Gherovici
Keywords: clinamen, sinthome, transsexuals, autobiographical narratives of sex-change

Abstract

My work with transsexuals has allowed me to understand how the concept of synthome can apply to their case, especially in so far as it allowed me to distinguish pathological from non-pathological structures. To buttress my clinical work, a reading of transsexual memoirs has led me to perceive how a second materialization of the body is a consequence of a torsion knotted by writing.
